Beginner question about heat dissipation

2023.03.21 18:30 Andra_9 Beginner question about heat dissipation

If power dissipated is P = V^2 / R, and the resistance of copper wire is very tiny (definitely much less than an ohm), wouldn't this tiny value of R result in a massive amount of power P being dissipated? Why doesn't electrical wiring instantly get so hot its insulation bursts into flames?
This doesn't seem to happen in real life. Yet, if I put a 100 Ohm resistor in line across a battery, it will quickly get extremely hot. What's going on here?

Dear friends,
I’ve been following Andre Bouchard’s rocky career since the day he took office as the new Chancellor in Delaware’s Court of Chancery, and I wrote about the way he handled the Sussex County Register of Wills Office in his first year, which I thought was abhorrent. I’ve been extra critical of him through the TransPerfect trial, which ended years ago, and somehow, court-payments linger and his old buddies at Skadden Arps are still collecting nearly six-figure monthly paychecks, thanks to Bouchard’s atrocious handling of the case.
I wonder which one of his friends could possibly get paid off this time because, in my opinion, the TransPerfect case has been milked for huge amounts of money for the benefit of Delaware’s Good-Ole-Boys Legal Club, aka friends of the Chancellor???
I’m seeing similar suspicious patterns in a new case covered by The Law360 story below, where he’s again being shortsighted, in my view, during a court-supervised sale, which sounds similar to me to the TransPerfect case. where he was, in my opinion, continually attempting to bully the sides into a settlement, rather than just doing his job as a judge.
The Law360 story, says it best, “Chancellor Bouchard, a veteran of epic — and unfinished — battles arising from the liquidation of TransPerfect Global Inc. after a falling-out between its founders.”
I would love to hear your thoughts on this one. In my opinion, this guy, who was never a judge before, somehow through his Democrat politics, getting the chief role at the Chancery Court, is not even learning on the job. Time for him to go!
Respectfully Yours,

Chancellor Rips Critics Of Pharma Sale As ‘Incredibly Naive’
By Jeff Montgomery
Share us on:
Law360 (April 20, 2020, 11:40 PM EDT) — Delaware’s chancellor branded some challenges to the court-supervised sale of drug developer Inspirion Delivery Sciences LLC as “astounding” and “incredibly naive” on Monday, noting that a court order had given a liquidating trustee broad latitude to complete the job.
The comments by Chancellor Andre G. Bouchard during a sale hearing teleconference followed arguments by Michael Yoder of Reid Collins & Tsai LLP that a new auction effort could have produced a better result than the offer of $4 million in cash and up to $10 million in future payments from OHEMO Life Sciences Inc. from royalties on anti-abuse opioid drug compounds.
Yoder, who represents former Inspirion members Raymond DiFalco and Manish Shah, argued that it made little sense for a trustee to “simply accept the first offer from a company insider,” referring to OHEMO, which has ties to IDS member Stefan Aigner.
Chancellor Bouchard, a veteran of epic — and unfinished — battles arising from the liquidation of TransPerfect Global Inc. after a falling-out between its founders, asked if Yoder had fully examined Delaware law and trustee discretion on the issue.
“I really find that astounding. You didn’t even address the standard of review in your papers,” the chancellor said. “I find equally astounding the notion that you didn’t think insiders would be able to bid. Do you know how most of these contests end? Typically somebody involved with the company buys the other side out.”
Yoder said he was not arguing that insiders could not participate, but said that his clients did not participate because they hoped for a successful sale to a third party and were unaware there were no third parties in the running until recently.
“That just demonstrates extraordinary naivety,” Chancellor Bouchard said. “It all seems so last-minute for your client to walk in here not prepared to do something, and I find it very hard to believe that if they wanted to make a bid, they couldn’t do it all along.”
Differences between Shah and DiFalco and member Aigner over approval and marketing of key anti-abuse drugs MorphaBond and RoxyBond hobbled the business, with Aigner attempting to remove DiFalco as president of IDS.
The court ordered a liquidation after a three-day trial in November 2018, although further disputes and market issues extended the process. The proposed winning bidder was OHEMO, based in Puerto Rico, a company championed by Aigner before the liquidation order as a replacement for the Shah and DiFalco-aligned production operation.
Cerovene Inc., controlled by Shah and DiFalco, made an offer valued at up to $15 million but missed a key deadline for the submission earlier this month, according to Donna L. Culver of Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnell LLP, counsel to liquidating trustee Derek C. Abbott.
Culver said Cerovene argued that the COVID-19 crisis and a lack of wire transfer specifics kept the business from making a required bid deposit, but not until “literally minutes before deadline” did the prospective competing bidder “give any indication he could not comply with the deadline.”
Nothing prevented DiFalco and Shah from getting involved through Cerovene earlier, Culver said, adding that the sale opponents also had not shown how the trustee or process represented an abuse of discretion.
Peter B. Ladig of Bayard PA, counsel to Aigner, Acela Investments LLC and two other companies that hold Aigner’s interests in IDS, said the business already had worked through a several-month marketing process, with 81 potential buyers approached, before choosing to move ahead with OHEMO for lack of a better offer.
“This is not, as I think the objectors would have the court believe, a question of having an auction just between the two insiders,” Ladig said. “This was an auction process that ran for months, and it’s really the end of the second process.”
Ladig said nothing in the case record supported claims that Aigner maneuvered the trustee into setting the final, 48-hour window for receipt of a competing offer for the business.
Chancellor Bouchard said he would take the arguments under advisement.
Aigner is represented by Peter B. Ladig and Brett M. McCartney of Bayard PA.
Shah and DiFalco are represented by Carmella P. Keener of Cooch and Taylor PA and William T. Reid IV, Michael Yoder, Jordan L. Vimont and Ryan M. Goldstein of Reid Collins & Tsai LLP.
Liquidating trustee Derek C. Abbott is represented by Donna L. Culver of Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnell LLP.
The case is Acela Investments LLC et al. v. Raymond DiFalco et al., case number 2018-0558, in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware.

2023.03.21 18:23 ScienceRabbit PowerApp Form from SharePoint List with Lookup

Hi Everyone,
I am customizing a SP form for a "Records" SP List. with PowerApps. Doing this in InfoPath would have been fairly easy, but Im new to PowerApps and this has been a headache.
I have a "Students" lookup column in my "Records" SP List that also pulls over some student demographics.
Im using Shane's Video here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43ekj5MlNJU&t=236s
My issue is that when I follow his steps for the 'update' value of the data card it gives me a "Expected Record Value" error
In 'Records' the primary column from the students list is the ID, so I entered Update = StudentDropDown.Selected.ID which pops up the above error. removing the ".ID" makes the error go away, but the column in the Records list remains blank in when testing the form.
Any help would be appreciated.

2023.03.21 18:15 Anxious-Ad6382 Is the mormon church evil?

If nothing more then watch the video linked below.
From a philosophical and logical argument. It is a moral obligation to sacrifice luxury or morally insignificant things in life to prevent bad things from happening in our world. Looking at the planet as a singular society and humans as either a good or evil being. If you have any luxury you are inherently evil. Therefore as a church that has excess in many ways. The church simply has too much and does too little.
In short based on moral arguments all churches that have an excess of any kind are evil.

Arguments that would counter this point of view are many. To address a few:
The argument that the church does not have excess...
Churches financial excess
Churches workforce excess
To explain this point I would present a point of view that by heavenly decree each active and faithful member is ordered to donate as much time as reasonably possible to temple attendance. Seeking the blessings of the dead and the luxury of personal revelation.
"Come to the temples worthily and regularly. Not only do you bless those who are deceased, but you may freely partake of the promised personal revelation that may bless your life..."
elder David B. Haight
This time could rather be used to reduce the bad things in the world.
The church has many forms of excess I only bring up a couple.

The argument that the church has much but does much.
From a financial point of few only the church uses roughly 2% of its monetary gain and value each year towards charity. The church donated more in 2021 than any other year in history at almost 1B$. The church's net worth is over 100B$. That is an atrocious difference.
Largest donation year ever link below.

Explanation of the Singer's principle statement

Singer’s argument for this conclusion is straightforward, resting largely on a key moral principle that we will call Singer’s Rescue Principle. The argument may be summarized as follows:
P1. Suffering and death from lack of food, shelter, or medical care are very bad. P2. We can prevent such suffering and death by donating to effective charities (in place of consumer purchases). P3. Many of our consumer purchases are morally insignificant: we could give them up without thereby sacrificing anything morally significant. P4. The Rescue Principle: If it is in our power to prevent something very bad from happening, without thereby sacrificing anything morally significant, we ought, morally, to do it. 4 Therefore, C. We ought, morally, to donate to effective charities rather than making morally insignificant consumer purchases.

(For context, my UFC 286 Preview for that event can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/MMAbetting/comments/11qh6nn/ufc_286_betting_preview_ufc_las_vegas_review/)

UFC 286
Bets: 4-3, +5.74u, Parlay Suggestions: 3-1
✅ 3u Gunnar Nelson & Marvin Vettori both to Win (-115)
✅ 2u Jack Shore & Impa Kasangany to Win (-180)
✅ 1u Jack Shore to Win in Round 2 or 3 (+241)
❌ 1.5u Omar Morales to Win (-110)
✅ 1u Leon Edwards to Win (+250)
❌ 1u Juliana Miller & Omran Chaaban to Win (-125)
❌ 0.25u Marvin Vettori, Gunnar Nelson, Jack Shore & Juliana Miller all to Win (+205)
As I said in my initial comments about UFC 286, I think it really under delivered from a fan perspective because of the lack of high level UK prospects. Without a Molly McCann, Darren Till, Paddy Pimblett or a Tom Aspinall, the fans just weren’t as excited or vocal throughout the card.
With that said, I’m always having fun if I’m making money! This was my third winning event in a row, a streak of over 10u profit in March. It was obviously a card of strong favourites but I’m mostly happy with the spots I chose to pull the trigger on. The Nelson/Vettori parlay was nice as both men delivered exactly what I expected them to, and Jack Shore also came through to cash a bigger priced prop bet. It’s really satisfying when your reads on fights turn out to be spot on, and your bets cash with relative ease as a result. Here's some live thoughts on the card + my breakdowns:
- So proud of Leon Edwards man, that was one hell of a performance. The way he levelled up that takedown defence and made his shots count in the clinch. It was one of those complicated fights to score in that he was moving backwards and fighting defensively for the most part, but he certainly landed more shots and had the better moments. Really happy to have gotten 2/1 and 3/1 (boosted) on the dog there.
- Jesus Christ Rafael Fiziev is quick. The combinations he was throwing in the first minute of round three were some of the most terrifying spurts of offence I’ve seen in some time. And then just a minute or so later Justin Gaethje starts winging massive uppercuts and cannot miss with them. That was such a good fight, real back and forth stuff. I feel like Gaethje was lowkey a really good underdog spot all week but it’s hard to give those opinions credence sometimes when the masses are all hyping up Fiziev. At least I identified Fiziev was not a good bet.
- Massive shoutout to Gunnar Nelson for performing exactly like a -400 should, as I expected him to! He got in, landed a takedown, and found the sub soon after. I still wish he would have done that against Takashi Sato, bur he rounded out the parlay with Vettori and made it a winning night for me! Along with Hadley, he was the best parlay option on the card (as I suggested).
- Casey O’Neill didn’t shoot for a takedown. Not the fight anyone was expecting. It’s disappointing when that happens but there’s not really a whole lot you can do. Jennifer Maia is a really underrated striker so god knows why Casey chose that path. When you consider the way Jake Hadley approached his fight and compare it with O’Neill…that’s the difference between good fight IQ and bad. I actually said in my analysis “I trust O’Neill’s dedication to her gameplan here” which is hilarious. Don’t think I can be blamed for not seeing it coming though haha.
- All week I was a little bit confused by all the love for Roman Dolidze, as I got on Marvin Vettori pretty early and didn’t really see a whole lot of reasoning that I understood. To be perfectly honest, Dolidze had more success than I expected him to, and any fighter other than Vettori would probably have wilted and got stopped. With that said, that’s exactly why I bet Marvin, so I don’t necessarily think it was a bad read at all. A solid parlay leg.
- Jack Shore vs Makwan Amirkhani played out exactly as I expected it to. Amirkhani’s a good grappler, so I wasn’t surprised nor worried when he clearly won round 1. In fact, I was more confident in winning my bets as soon as the horn sounded, and it showed. I don’t really understand how a professional fighter can have such a glaring cardio issue and not address it or adjust his style. I hope they keep Makwan around, those Round 2/3 props will always be good. Happy to finally win one of those bigger priced prop bets. I’ve historically been pretty good with props but somehow been on a dry patch since I started posting here.
- Chris Duncan v Morales was a frustrating one. Morales will look back on that one and be pissed off at himself, because he should absolutely be winning that. Chris Duncan really isn’t very good and I am already looking forward to fading him in the future. Hope they try and build him up because there’ll be a good fade waiting to happen. Annoying fight to lose but fair play to Duncan for identifying the path to victory. Glad I went with a smaller stake for a volatile fight.
- A shame what happened to Dusko Todorovic. Christian Leroy Duncan is a really exciting striker so I was looking forward to seeing more of him, but you never want to see that happen. I hope we don’t have to wait until the next England card for C L Duncan’s next fight, but I also hope they give him a bit of a lay-up for to allow for a proper “debut”.
- Nicely done from Jake Hadley, making use of his striking advantage and not getting sucked into a grappling affair. Always annoys me when someone has a distinct advantage but doesn’t use it because it’s not their plan A. He was the best parlay piece of the card. Good for Hadley and I’m excited to see what else he has to offer. Wish I’d gone with him instead of backing Juliana Miller.
- I was keeping half an eye on Herbert/Klein and Wood/Carolina whilst at work. Doesn’t look like I missed a whole lot and haven't bothered to rewatch.
- Juliana Miller with an awful performance. Veronica Macedo looked much improved but it didn’t take a whole lot to defeat an opponent with no plan B. I didn’t anticipate Macedo being the stronger fighter of the two, which changed a whole lot. Poor decision from me to back an inexperienced fighter at -400 like that. Grim. Inexperience really showed.

UFC San Antonio
I'm really excited for the main event of this one, very glad they put this fight together. Unfortunately the headliner is a massive cut above the rest of the card in terms of popularity and calibre, but we’ve had worse cards this year, I don’t mind it. Usually I’d rejoice over the fact we aren’t in the Apex…but we are in Texas, where judging has been historically AWFUL. There isn’t a whole lot we can really do with that information though, except consider how much of a fighter’s win probability is based around them finding a finish. Fighters who are likely to win without the judges getting involved will be the less volatile spots this week.
From a betting perspective, it’s a very weak card. The bookies have done a really good job of pricing the punters out of any value, as my conclusions to most fights see me lining it pretty close to the books, where there ends up being no real numerical edge on either side! Nonetheless, I’ve broken down most of the bouts on the card below:

Cory Sandhagen v Marlon Vera
Marlon Vera has always been one of my favourite fighters. Backing him to win inside the distance when he was a prelim fighter was a spot I always looked out for back in the day, so it’s great to see him climb so high in the rankings. I always support and ride with the fighters that make me money over the years, and Vera has been one of the best of them.
Unfortunately, Vera’s always relied on his power and finishing ability to really carry him through fights, as there are a lot of instances where he’s down on the overall scorecards, before finding a finish. His wins over Dominic Cruz and Frankie Edgar are the two best examples recently, but his issue of being a slow starter also made this applicable in wins over Davey Grant, Nohelin Hernandez and Guido Cannetti. Also similarly, he was being thoroughly outboxed by Rob Font in their main event encounter last year, but the Ecuadorian was stealing rounds with knockdowns in a very similar way.
Considering I expect this fight against Cory Sandhagen to be a closely contested one, Vera’s inability to win minutes and start strong could end up becoming a problem here. The pivotal question in this fight is whether or not Vera can hurt or finish Sandhagen, as I certainly lean towards favouring Cory if this fight goes the distance and Vera hasn’t scored multiple knockdowns.
Vera is one of the most dangerous guys P4P on the roster, with KO and Submission potential across all five rounds – but Sandhagen has been pretty damn durable in his MMA career. Aljamain Sterling was the only man of 19 able to finish Cory, and it came in under 90 seconds. Sandhagen’s performance there was such a disappointment that I’m convinced there was something else going on that hindered him that night. Petr Yan also dropped Sandhagen with a spinning back fist combo, but that seemed very much like Cory getting caught unaware – and he looked like he recover instantly.
Given the calibre that Sandhagen has fought against in the last four years – I think we have to give him the benefit of the doubt in assuming he can stay safe here. If that is the case I expect him to win rounds with superior output and a faster pace – especially considering he’s got a high likelihood of being one round up after five minutes.
I’m not super confident in that take though as it’s hardly on the level of Garbrandt vs Jones or something! So it’s a fight I’m definitely lining as quite close. Sandhagen deserves to be deemed the favourite for the above reasons, but I wouldn’t be too surprised if Vera’s dangerousness was enough to tip the balance in his favour, or if he was able to win a round by just point striking anyway.
I saw a stat this week that said there have been 10 rounds in 2023 where a knockdown is landed but the round still ended and was scored. Of those scorecards, the fighter landing the knockdown won 8 of 10 times. Whilst it’s highly implied that a knockdown means you’re more likely to win the round based off how the following minutes take place, that does still imply the judges are leaning towards awarding damage over minute winning (I personally hate the way MMA judging has gone these days but it is what it is). Just something to consider when you think about Chito’s path to victory.
At the end of the day, it’s an intriguing fight, and not one I think anyone should be rushing to the betting window for due to the small margins in the various skill discrepancies.
How I line this fight: Cory Sandhagen -150 (60%), Marlon Vera +150 (40%)
Bet or Pass: Pass

Holly Holm v Yana Santos
Holly Holm is one of those fighters who makes your memory play tricks on you. I instinctively feel like I have a good read on her style and overall calibre, but then when I watch tape she’s always a much more underwhelming version of that fighter I have in my head. She just doesn’t really put her stamp on rounds – spending too much time in the clinch and does not have high enough volume. 3.24 significant strikes landed per 15 minutes is a shockingly low number, especially considering it’s Women’s MMA and Holm has a lot of in cage time. To make matters worse, Holm averages 0.72 takedowns per 15 minutes and is now 41 years old.
Whilst there’s a lot of data to crunch on Holm, there’s actually a surprisingly smaller sample size on Yana Santos. Considering Kunitskaya (previous surname) has been a known name in Women’s MMA for some time, it’s pretty crazy to think she only has 7 UFC appearances to her name – most of which are against a lesser calibre than Holly Holm. She’s also coming off a two year lay-off having had a child with Thiago Santos, which adds further uncertainty to an already tepid read.
As I’m sure you may have noticed by now, this breakdown is much more stat-based than I typically offer (though Women’s MMA is a lot more accessible for stats), because I honestly cannot bring myself to re-watch Holly Holm’s career and I’m instead relying on what the numbers are telling me. Perhaps that’s a bit lazy, but this is the 8th week of UFC cards in a row and I am feeling very burnt out! I just don’t think either woman has a particularly commanding style, and there’s a hell of a lot of intangibles floating around this fight (old age, post-child birth, lay-offs, levels of competition, Texas judging etc), so it’s a very easy pass.
How I line this fight: I won’t line a fight I haven’t taped, but I do not recommend Holm at this price.
Bet or Pass: Pass

Nate Landwehr v Austin Lingo
It’s a shame Alex Caceres had to pull out of the originally scheduled bout against Nate Landwehr, but good to see they managed to find Austin Lingo a fight so soon after the Ricardo Ramos one fell through a couple of weeks ago (still annoyed I didn’t get to cash some easy money there). From a fan perspective, this bout is probably the most entertaining of the three available!
Both dudes are hardnosed strikers that like to fight gritty and wear out their opponents. Neither are particularly gifted from a technique perspective, but you’d be hard pressed to find fighters that can out work these two. Pitting them against one another is going to lead to an exhausting fight.
Landwehr is the much more experienced of the two and has clearly had more career success implementing the brawling style, but I think this is just one of those matchups that’s going to be fought quite closely, given how it should play out. Landwehr relies on sheer busyness and drowning his opponents to win rounds but, if he can’t necessarily do that to Lingo, do you really have a whole lot of confidence that he’s going to be the clear round winner? The guy gets hit by 5.56 significant strikes per minute. Considering we are in Texas and there is added volatility to the judging, any fighter that can land 5.56 S.Strikes is live to win a round or two!
Landwehr’s key to winning this fight is going to be in his wrestling, as that’s where he will clearly assert himself. But can he even get it there though? Lingo’s debut performance against Youseff Zalal was a big red flag in terms of his takedown defence, but he looks to have improved it in his following two bouts. However, those came against a lower level of competition so could well be flattering Lingo’s overall ability. His takedown defence stats are quite skewed, and he’s coming off an 18 month layoff which muddies the water even more.
I think the edge in experience and overall competence at the hard-nosed styles means that Landwehr deserves to be favoured here, but I think the pricetag is a bit ridiculous. He should get the win, but I would be very surprised if he does it with the dominance of a -275. The lay off for Lingo means that he can have anywhere from a very low floor to a reasonably high ceiling. Both men are durable and will have moments in this fight, so this is one of the fights where I’m expecting some wild shit from Texas judges. If you’re convinced about betting Landwehr at -300 here, you’re crazy. Lingo the value side, but mostly based off intangibles and hypotheticals, which doesn’t fill me with enough confidence to pull the trigger.
How I line this fight: Nate Landwehr -200 (67%), Austin Lingo +200 (34%)
Bet or Pass: Pass

Andrea Lee v Maycee Barber
This one should be pretty fun! It’s speed and agility vs power and force.
Andrea Lee is a complicated fighter to get a full read on, as her performances have really varied throughout her career. She’s well rounded enough to outstrike most equally levelled opponents on the feet, and her grappling isn’t too bad either. Takedown defence needs a bit of work though.
The biggest issue with Lee is those back-to-back losses to Lauren Murphy and Roxanne Modafferi. It’s just inexcusable to lose both of those of those fights when you’re the calibre that Andrea Lee is. I know you can argue she got robbed against Murphy (it’s probably the key example of Texas judging being so bad), but she let the fight become quite close. And yes, Barber lost to Modafferi, but that was all determined by an injury and anyone who tells you otherwise is a hater or hasn’t watched it.
I’ve always thought Barber was overrated in terms of skills, but her physicality and strength are a bit of a gamechanger in the Women’s divisions. She’s well-rounded, but statistically has lesser output than Andrea Lee…which is always concerning. I expect this one to be quite competitive, where Andrea Lee could easily stay safe on the outside and jab her way to a win, as long as she gets on her bike and utilises good footwork. Maycee will plod forward and look to land the power shot, but that’s not a particularly high percentage outcome to rely on in Women’s MMA. If she can get her hands on her and utilise the clinch, I think it’s all one way traffic from there though. Maycee is reliable to do that, at least.
I can understand Barber being the favourite based off the finishing upside, imposing striking with good metrics and ability to land takedowns…but I’m just still not wholly convinced by her ability as a mixed martial artist outside of the way she implements brute force. It might be enough here, but I just don’t like her at this short of a price. Lee has a clear path to victory that, whilst I’m not convinced she can execute it, should be taken seriously.
How I line this fight: Andrea Lee +163 (38%), Maycee Barber -163 (62%)
Bet or Pass: Pass

Alex Perez v Manel Kape
It’s just impossible to know what we’re getting from Alex Perez at this stage, isn’t it? I like Manel Kape and rate him relatively highly, but I have always maintained that Perez on his best day could well be a champion at Flyweight. I bet him in most of his fights in the buildup to the title bout against Figgy – and I bet him there as well. Unfortunately Figgy was still in his explosive prime so it didn’t work out, but I expected Perez to become somewhat of a title eliminator gatekeeper from then on. Since that loss two and a half years ago his career has taken a peculiar turn – eight fight cancellations and a 91 second loss to Alexandre Pantoja.
There are just so many question marks surrounding Alex Perez at the moment, and that makes it impossible to know what to expect in this fight. If he was at his best, I’d consider him a slight favourite here, but who knows. Kape’s weakness is clearly defensive wrestling, and he can sometimes be low volume enough on the feet that he makes fights closer than they need to be. Perez has a good enough style to make that work and win here…providing we get him at his best.
I didn’t dive into much tape for this one as I knew I wasn’t going to bet it at all. If you think Kape beats Perez based off the footage available then you’re getting a decent price!
How I line this fight: Didn’t tape, won’t line it.
Bet or Pass: Pass

Chidi Njokuani v Albert Duraev
It’s crazy how much Albert Duraev’s stock has fallen, all in one loss to Joaquin Buckley. Before that bout he looked sensational on the Contender Series, and followed it up with a dominant win over Roman Kopylov as a -450 favourite. He absolutely does his best work in the grappling and showed that he doesn’t have much of a plan B if he can’t land takedowns or settle his opponent on their back. I’m also not too convinced by his cardio, and any opponent that will make him work hard to secure top position can weaponise his questionable endurance in the later rounds.
Buckley’s such a physical and stocky guy though, I think he’s naturally going to be a tough opponent to take down when you’ve got a bit more of a wirey frame like Duraev does. Chidi Njokuani isn’t so muscular and stocky, so I think it’s fair to assume that Duraev’s going to be more of a threat with the takedowns than he was against Buckley.
The problem is, Chidi showed some really impressive get ups after the initial takedown and doesn’t usually settle on the bottom whilst he’s fresh. Dusko Todorovic isn’t the best grappler in the world by any stretch, but Chidi was doing all the right things to prevent hit back from lying flat on the mat, and if he has similar success against Duraev he’s cruising.
The finish to the Robocop fight was a bit of a concern, but that fight heated up to a ridiculously fast pace in round 1 that I think Chidi cardio dumped, got rocked, and kind of quit on the bottom against Rodrigues. The same could happen again, but it would rely on Duraev pushing the pace aggressively with his striking, which isn’t something he often does.
Overall, I think Njokuani definitely deserves to be a favourite here as he is much more dangerous on the feet and has shown us already that he can successfully answer the questions that Duraev will ask. The Russian also does not have much of a plan B and doesn’t always do a whole lot with his top control except set up submissions. Considering Njokuani is a BJJ Black Belt, and the judges probably won’t appreciate those kind of optics from Duraev, I’m not massively convinced by his chances here.
I’m interested to see what kind of price they’re giving for Njokuani ITD in this fight, as I’m quite convinced by his finishing ability since he moved up to Middleweight, and Duraev is very hittable if he gets stuck on the feet. If I can get + money on it I think I’d have a small wager.
How I line this fight: Chidi Njokuani -175 (64%), Albert Duraev +175 (36%)
Bet or Pass: 1.5u Chidi Njokuani & CJ Vergara Both to Win (+122)

Steven Peterson v Lucas Alexander
I complain pretty much every week about the UFC’s current fighter calibre having massively declined recently, and nothing proves my point like Steven Peterson finally becoming a betting favourite for the first time in 8 UFC bouts. The guy has been the perfect litmus test to determine whether any fighter is UFC level, and those he has beaten were notoriously bad at the time and didn’t last long at the top level (Chase Hooper excluded because he had some “name value”).
He’s got some similarities to Austin Lingo in that he is some generic white guy with bad tattoos, that doesn’t have any real skill but is gritty and dedicated to the fight. If you can’t put him away, you’re going to have keep your shit together or he might surprise you by sheer output and ruggedness. No fighter that is credited mostly for their ability to take a punch and walk forward deserves to be a -175 favourite, but they also don’t always deserve to be massive underdogs either (see breakdown of Landwehr vs Lingo). The thing that baffles me the most though is that Peterson isn’t much of a finisher (6 of his last 7 went the distance), meaning the books are putting a fair bit of stock into his ability to win a decision.
So…Lucas Alexander. His UFC debut was a quick loss via RNC, but it came off a slip from a kick and the rest was kind of a formality at that point once Brito got the back as a result. Personally I don’t really put much/any stock into that loss as I don’t think it showed us anything about him apart from his defensive grappling isn’t elite? Ask yourself this…if this was Lucas Alexander’s UFC debut, would the line still be the same? It depends on what the regional tape looks like, but I’m quite sure it wouldn’t!
Therefore, we have to go back to the regional scene to actually get a glimpse of Alexander…and there is a lot more to be intrigued by than you might think. He’s a better technical striker than Peterson! He’s got great fluidity and movement, throws a varied arsenal of kicks and combos (lots of leg kicks, which will halt that forward pressure), and switches stances quite often. I’m not too sure how he’ll deal with being crowded by Peterson and his intense style, but I fully expect him to get the better of the majority of the striking exchanges whilst they’re at distance.
To win this fight cleanly, the grappling is the answer for Peterson…but Alexander’s defensive wrestling and get ups aren’t bad at all from what I’ve seen! I’ve seen evidence of him using the cage to get back to his feet and reversing position in the clinch, as well as maintaining position in top control. Apparently he’s a black belt as well, but I try not to immediately assume that makes you a good grappler (he does have 3 submission losses tbf). I did see a few submission attempts and successful reversals from bottom against Jeremias Fernandez, and was impressed with how he handled being on the bottom. The two regional scene submission losses both came in 2018, and honestly he looks like he’s improved his wrestling/grappling a lot since then so I’m not massively concerned by them.
Peterson has averaged just 1.61 TDs landed per 15 minutes, which isn’t a massively high number and doesn’t really fill you with a whole lot of confidence that he’s going to stick to a grappling based gameplan in this fight, especially when we know how much he enjoys brawling. If he does come with that kind of gameplan then I guess I expect him to be favoured (still hard to say how good/bad Alexander’s grappling is), but if he opts to strike I think he’s at a disadvantage.
For me, this fight is clearly a pick’em, or at least leans slightly towards Peterson as the favourite. I do expect Alexander to perform better than his +150 price tag suggests, as I think he’s got the potential to keep out of danger with the grappling and actually outscore Peterson on the feet. This fight probably goes the distance and, given the hesitance I have about Texas judges, I’d much rather be on the + money side there as well. Alexander is still being regarded as a “UFC debut” fighter in my eyes so I won’t be staking much here…but if you’re betting Peterson at -180 I think you’re crazy.
How I line this fight: Steven Peterson -120 (54%), Lucas Alexander +120 (46%)
Bet or Pass: 1u Lucas Alexander to Win (+150 or better…waiting to see if the juice continues)

Trevin Giles v Preston Parsons
Preston Parsons looked really good in his win over Evan Elder last year, with the latter going on to impress everyone with his latest performance against Nazim Sadykhov a few weeks ago. Parsons has a really suffocating wrestling/grappling style, forcing his opponents to work and threatening with a variety of submissions. He can be a little “submission over position” but he’s got an arsenal of really good sweeps from bottom. His striking also looked decent in the loss to Daniel Rodriguez, throwing shots at angles and landing pretty cleanly on D-Rod a few times.
He faces Trevin Giles, who has had a pretty eventful UFC career so far. Giles suffered back to back R3 losses to Zak Cummings and Gerald Meerschaert in fights he was clearly winning, where lapses in concentration saw him snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. He then went on to be the benefactor of one of the worst decisions in MMA history when he beat James Krause by decision. Giles hasn’t really gone on to do a whole lot in his UFC career since, but a well-aged win over Roman Dolidze stands out as the highlight.
Giles has decent striking himself, but he is such a low volume fighter that I think he’s going to struggle to win rounds against Preston ‘Pressure’ Parsons if he doesn’t do damage. The younger fighter will be happy to push the pace in this one, varying up his striking with a few takedown entries and just overwhelming Giles, who likes to fight patiently and methodically on the feet. Giles looks clean when he’s involved in a staring match on the feet, but when the tempo turns up and things get a bit wild he kind of loses all composure and technique (see losses to Morales and Du Plessis recently). Giles is also a decent enough grappler, but he’s prone to reversals on the mat (which Parsons will definitely try to execute), and can accept bottom position if his initial guard sub or two get shut down.
I’m struggling to really see why this one is being lined as a pick’em here, as Giles doesn’t hold a whole lot of advantages that I think he’ll be able to implement. He’s clearly a good striker, but the low volume should prevent him from really being able to show that off properly, and he won’t be the fighter looking to put his stamp on rounds when he’s fighting at a tempo way higher than he wants. He’s more experienced, but we’ve also seen lots of examples of poor fight IQ consistently creeping into Giles’ game and he hasn’t addressed the flaws of his style.
I’d line Parsons as a small to moderate favourite in this fight, and I’ll be betting him for a couple of units as a result.
How I line this fight: Trevin Giles +150 (40%), Preston Parsons -150 (60%)
Bet or Pass: 3u Preston Parsons to Win (+100)

CJ Vergara v Daniel Da Silva
To me, this seems like one of those fights where the UFC are acknowledging Vergara has paid his dues, and are giving him a bit of a softball as a result.
No one really knew what to make of Vergara when he got to the UFC – a KO win on the Contender Series in 41 seconds is usually a red flag more than anything! They lined him up with Ode Osbourne for his debut, where he was a +170 underdog. He put a really impressive display in that fight, with many thinking he actually won against a guy that is quite well respected at Flyweight.
Next, he was a +270 underdog to Kleydson Rodrigues, who was making his debut as a highly, highly touted prospect. Everyone and their mothers was on Rodrigues in that fight, yet Vergara fought a really smart and dedicated gameplan and won a close split decision. I had a big bet on Kleydson in his fight a few weeks ago, and rewatching the Vergara fight had me respecting him all over again. Given what we saw Kleydson do to Shannon Ross (not that the latter is a world beater) did nothing but improve Vergara’s stock.
Then, for his third UFC bout, he gets Tatsuro Taira! Probably one of the top 5 hottest unranked prospects in the sport right now. That was the first time we saw Vergara actually look like the +220 underdog that the books had him as, but given the hype around Taira that’s actually a respectable number to be graded at! There really isn’t a long list of fighters who are willing to fight Taira at the moment, so the matchmakers have probably scheduled this fight as a thank you for Vergara being a company man.
They’ve given him Daniel da Silva (Lacerda) as a reward. DdS is a pretty wild fighter, with 15 bouts all ending inside the distance (and none even reaching round 3). That kind of kill-or-be-killed style is certainly fun to watch, but it doesn’t really work out as well as you’d think when you hit the big shows. Don’t get me wrong, he looks pretty decent in round 1, but Vergara is a durable guy that has shown good IQ in the cage so far. He should find a way to stay safe in that opening round, probably by landing a takedown and coasting in top control like Jeff Molina did (also, shoutout Jeff Molina for handling the social media chaos with grace last week!), or by pushing that ferocious striking pace and keeping da Silva on the backfoot.
Even so, da Silva is a liability to himself in Round 1 as well, as we saw in losses to Francisco Figueiredo and Victor Altamirano. Getting kneebar’d by Figgy’s subpar brother is a pretty bad look, and he had absolutely no answer for Altamirano’s ground striking as soon as he was on his back. His commitment to the guard sub is insane, and it’s probably going to be responsible for yet another loss here against Vergara.
I think we’re getting a decent price on Vergara here. The blueprint has been written on Da Silva and, whilst Vergara will have to be careful for the opening few minutes, I think CJ’s got him covered here. I jumped in on the -275 as a parlay piece, as I think there’s an argument Vergara should probably be a bigger favourite here?
Also, as a side note from watching Molina vs Da Silva – Damn James Krause was a good coach. What a waste!
How I line this fight: CJ Vergara -300 (75%), Daniel Da Silva +300 (25%)
Bet or Pass: 1.5u CJ Vergara & Chidi Njokuani Both to Win (+122)

Vinicius Salvador v Victor Altamirano
I loved Vinicius Salvador’s DWCS performance against Shannon Ross and I’m really excited to see him make his debut, but I’m not massively sure about how good he is as an overall fighter. His style instantly makes him a fan favourite, but using nothing but head movement to defend, and having that cocky style that throws ridiculous highlight reel kicks isn’t really a positive trait when you’re looking to put your hard earned money on a fighter. It looks cool and can sometimes impress the judges…but it’s a risky game and can easily see you getting caught clean or making mistakes. There’s a reason Michel Pereira doesn’t fight like a lunatic anymore.
Salvador hits hard and absolutely has knockout power, having finished 13 of his 14 wins by KO (the other was a submission). He’s also lost inside the distance in three of his 4 losses, and Shannon Ross did have him hurt for a second or two in the DWCS fight. He’s a chaotic fighter, and I’m really annoyed we got robbed of the chance to see him fight Daniel Da Silva a few months ago. It would have been fireworks.
This might sound stupid as a genuine piece of logic and reasoning, but I have always fully believed the notion that Mexican fighters have the best chins and next level toughness. It’s kind of a dumb narrative for me to hang my hat on, but I am always hesitant to side with a knockout-based fighter if it’s a Mexican opponent they’re trying to put to sleep. We saw Altamirano eat a few clean and heavy shots from Daniel Da Silva in his last bout, which makes me think I might have to side with my illogical narrative once again.
With that said, I still think Salvador deserves to be favoured by a small margin here. Victor Altamirano just isn’t very good. His win over DdS was kind of a high variance random knee, and he was clearly losing that fight up to that point. He was competitive in the win against Carlos Hernandez, but I feel like that fight didn’t do much to show off the skills of either guy and it really solidified that they are equally matched as entry level UFC fighters. It was like an intense sparring session, where neither guy had any real sting on their shots and only looked to point score, with a bit of cage pushing thrown in for good measure.
The power discrepancy between Altamirano and Salvador is too big to ignore here. Salvador is going to come out hot and look to take Victor’s head off, and I just don’t think Altamirano is going to be able to earn back the respect of Salvador here. The striking should be one-way traffic whilst they’re fresh, simply because Salvador’s going be doing damage with almost every shot that he lands. As the fight wears on though, I expect Altamirano have a lot more success in the later minutes, as he settles into the fight and has grown confident he can withstand the power (as well as some of the sting coming off Salvador’s shots).
Altamirano doesn’t look like wrestling/grappling is his preferred skillset, but I think he would do well to lean on it a bit here. I haven’t been able to really find any tape on Salvador’s defensive wrestling/grappling, but I have to assume that a fighter with as little technical discipline as him is probably not the greatest grappler in the world.
I see Vinicius Salvador as something similar to the Brazilian equivalent of Trevor Peak. It's easy to get ahead of yourself and try to fade a guy with brute force and no technique, but it’s important to realise that the judges don’t score technique and as long as Salvador is landing something, he’ll earning favour with the judges and threatening to score a finish too.
I don’t think Altamirano is the guy to capitalise on those defensive lapses of Salvador, so I think the Brazilian is the rightful favourite. However, there’s not enough value on the line to justify a bet here, and Salvador could easily be the maker of his own downfall with his reckless style, and that’s not the kind of guy I like to back.
Very excited to see this one play out. I will probably throw Salvador into a couple of my untracked degenerate parlays, but officially it’s a no-bet for me.
How I line this fight: Vinicius Salvador -120 (54%), Victor Altamirano +120 (46%)
Bet or Pass: Pass

Tamires Vidal v Hailey Cowan
The UFC are being very generous to Hailey Cowan, aren’t they!? After trying and failing to set her up with one of the worst fighters on the roster, Ailin Perez, they’re trying again to offer her a bit of a soft entry into the UFC.
The problem is that Cowan is just simply not very good, so I think she’s going to struggle against anyone that’s borderline UFC calibre. Tamires Vidal sits on the fringe, and she seems to be the much more dangerous of the two and actually has some process to her striking, so I think Cowan deserves to be the underdog once again.
The betting line here has been on a real journey already. Books opened Cowan as a +200 underdog, and it looks to have been jumped on by some opportunistic value bettors – and rightly so! I just hope the steam has come in because they think the line was wide, not because they have any real faith in Cowan!
I’m intrigued to see how far the overcorrection goes, as this one really should land around a pick’em. The books won’t mind tipping the balance towards Cowan if it means they’ve got equal money on each side, as this isn’t going to be a high stakes fight so they’ll prioritise keeping the book green.
I have to remind myself of the calibre I’m dealing with here though…both women are low level and high variance is at play! If all the money on Cowan continues to come and Vidal’s price gets bigger, then a true value bettor should pounce on any decent size + money…but you really do have to accept that you’re getting into bed with variance here.
How I line this fight: Tamires Vidal -110 (52%), Hailey Cowan +110 (48%)

There was this question of SA&V, the value of pi wasn’t specified so I took it as 3.14 and got 1055.04 as the answer, but if I had taken it as 22/7 I would have gotten 1056. So will the examiner cut my marks for taking the value as 3.14?

2023.03.21 16:45 MoeDantes So I gave Ducktales 2017 a second chance

At some point in the past, I mentioned not liking the 2017 Ducktales. However, not long ago I read things that made me feel like giving the 2017 show a second shot.
The thing that got me interested was, basically, hearing that it ends up becoming this big Disney Afternoon crossover, where apparently the Rescue Rangers, the cast of Talespin, and some aspects of Darkwing Duck all exist in the same universe. I mean, it sounded like a fanfic fever dream, but sometimes fanfic fever dreams can be made of awesome. And who knows, maybe my initial distaste was just a bad mood or something....
So I find a way to watch Ducktales 2017, and I make it about fifteen episodes into the first season...
.... and I stop because I realize I'm going through aspirin way too fast.
But one thing I wanna mention real quick.... the 1980s Ducktales
So usually any time 2017 is brought up (especially if you're critical of it), the discussion tends to turn into a "1980s versus 2017" thing (or if you're dealing with fans who actually know sh--, 2017 versus the comics of Carl Barks and Don Rosa).
But let's be honest: 1980s Ducktales was not some sacred thing too holy for this Earth. In fact honestly, speaking as a guy who nerds out over eighties and nineties cartoons, I always found Disney's TV offerings the weakest of either decade, usually because of the writing.
I will say that Ducktales 1980s is better than 2017.... but it's more accurate to say it's less grating and more bearable and has more moments of geniunely engaging stories. But at the same time it also has episodes like "All Ducks on Deck" which basically foreshadows a lot of the problems I'd end up having with the 2017 show... and I'll say this: Gizmoduck's introduction in 2017 was better than his introduction in 1980, in a movie/five-part episode called "Super Ducktales" which winds up going right off the rails.... just saying: I think the meds were kicking in the moment they decided to have aliens show up and steal Scrooge's Money Bin.
So what sucks about the 2017 Ducktales?
In a word: the characters. Holy Sh-- the characters. After fifteen episodes I was sooo sick of how everyone was this hipster ironic detached self/cosmically-aware dipsh-- always ready with the quips and dialogue that sound like things a Channel Awesome reviewer would say as a joke and yet are apparently what these people actually chose to say for real in their actual lives.
Writing tip: .... try having a conversation with another person in the real world, preferably someone who isn't someone you met online.
One thing I wanna comment on real quick... since I only watched season one, I did not see the 2017 version of Doofus. Now, Doofus in the original show was not a particularly great character... but just on principle, I hate the idea of taking an unpopular character and making them a villain. Why the f--- would you ever think that's a good idea? A better idea would be to just not use him at all.
Let's talk about Webby
I used to think Webby was my biggest problem with this show, but actually she's grown on me... or rather, now that I've seen how annoying the nephews are, she's easier to tolerate.
The thing that bothers me about Webby is she's basically the Pinkie Pie. She's the cute quirky one, which you know in modern writing means she's gonna be allowed to say, do, or behave just however because the writers are gonna favorite her (much like, again, what happened with Pinkie Pie). No quirk or behavior or sudden out-of-nowhere ability is too out-there for the Writer Favorite Cute Quirky Girl!
I recall having a problem with this very early on. "Daytrip of Doom" (the very second episode of the series) shows that Webby doesn't understand the concept of lying, even when its demonstrated right in front of her. This is supposed to come off as quirky and a sign of her "not getting things" due to being a shut-in, but no amount of justifications or rationalizations can change the fact that she just comes off as stupid: Louie shows her how to lie. He does it right in front of her, and he explains the reasons for it.
The only way to read that scene is that she doesn't understand the concept of deception.... but here's the thing:
On rewatch, this issue is even worse: very first episode shows that she has a conspiracy theory wall and already suspects that the McDuck clan has a web of secrets and lies. The very same episode where she can't lie to score a free drink also shows she has a copy of The Art of War which she apparently values so highly that she struggles to fit it into her survival pack (and yes, its very clear that Webby can read, and has an Encyclopedia Brown-like capacity for remembering a lot of it--just the fact that she can translate ancient hieroglyphs demonstrates this). How can she have read The Art of War and not learned about deception when that's like 90% of what it discusses?
AND THEN later still, the show reveals she's been being asked to lie about things all her life by either Scrooge or Mrs. Beakley.
AND THEN AND THEN in episode four, implied to only be a short time after episode two, Webby is such a master deceiver that she's able to trick some of the Beagle Boys by making up an entire fake name and history for herself and her new friend on the spot, with British accents and everything! (Okay, to be fair, maybe Webby is a fast learner... just not fast enough to score free drinks).
But like I said, Webby doesn't irritate me as much, because I now see what the rest of the cast is like.
Let's talk about....
Flintheart Glomgold
Flint, my man, what did they do to you? Why, why did they decide to turn you into this over-the-top parody of cartoon villains?
The funny thing is.... I can't speak for the original Carl Barks comics, but the 1980s cartoon didn't even imply Flintheart was a villain. Him and Scrooge had more like an Old Married Couple dynamic (actually one odd thing about the 1980s show was that the villains could be oddly nice when dealing with anyone who wasn't Scrooge, and I feel like this would've been a more interesting route... but instead the 2017 show goes and makes both Flintheart and my gal Magica more one-note).
Just for an example, watch this Youtube compilation. Now try to imagine this Flintheart walking around with a hand puppet he treats as his son or loading up slides while maniacally explaining his evil plan.
But at least Flintheart was kinda funny sometimes..... as opposed to...
That Mark Zuckerberg stand-in guy
I don't remember his name and I don't care to. I think it was like Mark Beaks or something. God, every time this guy showed up, I hoped he would die, not in a "he's a villain and I want to see his comeuppance" way, but in a "if he dies then I'll never have to see another episode featuring him" way. Seriously, he makes me long for the 1980s version of Doofus.
And look... I get that to an extent, the entire idea is that Duckerberg is meant to be this shallow, social-media obsessed idiot who got big because he just happened to have a few good ideas. And I mean... fine. He's a character who works for one episode. BUT THEY KEEP BRINGING HIM BACK.
One problem I always had with Disney's 1980s cartoons is how they liked to introduce annoying side characters, like how Rescue Rangers had the Pi-Rats and Canina LeFur. I see Disney still doesn't have their heads screwed on straight and still looks at annoying concepts and says "yeah, we need this in our show." Disney: please un-f--- yourself.
Launchpad McQuack
So another issue Disney's writing has had since the 1980s is that the longer their shows go on, the more simplistically (and often inconsistently) their characters are portrayed. Poor Launchpad is prime example numero uno.
Originally, he was a reckless daredevil but he wasn't stupid. This changed as the show went on (maybe all those crashes were giving him brain damage?) and when Launchpad appeared in Darkwing Duck, he had an overall drop in intelligence. Also... does he understand that crashing is bad or doesn't he? The old shows played it both ways--sometimes he thinks crashing is the proper way to land, other times he knows its a mistake.
(Then again Disney is the same company that had Chip grouching at Gadget, a girl he supposedly was in love with. No wonder Gadget ended up marrying the damn fly).
That was nothing compared to Ducktales 2017 though, where Launchpad is such a brainless buffoon that you legitimately wonder how this guy hasn't accidentally choked himself to death or been talked into sticking his beak in an electric outlet.
And the writers are under the dangerous delusion that his stupidity is funny.
It isn't. Easily the worst part of any episode is when they devote upwards of several infinities to showing Launchpad being incredibly stupid. Like no joke, one of the few episodes I was legitimately enjoying was the one about Mt. Neverrest, and yet several minutes were dedicated to Launchpad's stupidity causing him to have several misadventures that really should've resulted in his death (and I wish they had).
Scrooge McDuck and Donald
.... Actually, Donald is probably the one character they did justice to.
And Scrooge isn't so bad either. He acts a little more.... "product of the age of youtube age" than I would like, he's still the most relatable character.
(An example of what I mean... while I didn't watch the full episode featuring Doofus, I did watch the pre-title sequence, and it kinda exemplifies what I mean by "product of the youtube age").
Not to brag, but in that episode that's framed as a mystery where they're trying to figure out who kidnapped Scrooge during his birthday party, I had correctly figured the solution right off the bat. Watching 600+ Detective Conan episodes paid off, baby! (It helped that, well, Scrooge had done basically what I would do).
Huey, Dewey, and Louie
.... But mostly Dewey
I actually don't think I have a huge issue with Huey. Louie's laziness bugged me at first but when it became clear it was being presented as a character flaw he's meant to get over and not just joke fodder, I bore it.
Sometimes I want to slap some sense into Dewey though.
Actually, back up... Dewey had one moment in particular that struck me as "because the script says so."
It was in the episode where they went to that island with Zeus and Storkules (who, unfortunately, I know we see again because his name is in an episode title).
So Webby and Dewey make it to this room that has this entrance to a hidden inner chamber, they open it, and the entrance is slowly closing... Dewey suddenly decides he doesn't wanna go in because this will finally reveal the truth about his mom (spoiler: it reveals f--k all) and Webby had been pestering him all episode about the evidence implying Della had betrayed Scrooge.
So Dewey is suddenly all "No, I don't wanna go in there and risk finding out my mom is a villain!"
...... then just as the door is about to close, Dewey changes his mind.
For no reason.
Webby doesn't give him a speech, he doesn't have an epiphany or a thought... it's like a switch flipped in his head and he said "okay, the script says I change my mind now" and he decides him and Webby should dive in.
To quote Confused Matthew: "What was at stake, the running time?" Actually yeah it really felt like Dewey's sudden reluctance and just-as-sudden turnaround only happened because they needed to pad the episode's length a bit.
Other Things
Not a big fan of Gyro Gearloose being implied evil and only capable of creating robots that turn evil.
On the other hand though, I looked ahead because I needed to see how Gosalyn (from Darkwing Duck) was interpreted and honestly her portrayal makes me wanna at least watch those episodes, even though she's not a patch on 1990s Gosalyn (who was adorable).
I have no real issues with Lena. I do kinda wanna finish Season One just to see how Magica turns out, but... I'm not a big fan of the brief glimpses we've gotten so far.
Does Merlock ever appear in this series? I've heard Gene the Genie does, so I would assume Merlock is here too. (Too bad in this version, he had nothing to do with sinking Atlantis).
In Conclusion
The sad part is that despite how painful this show has been so far (so much that I had to take an extended break after just fifteen episodes), a part of me does want to see more of it, just to see how certain things are done or handled.... even though by this point I know I'm probably gonna hate it.

TORONTO, March 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Goliath Resources Limited (TSX-V: GOT) (OTCQB: GOTRF) (Frankfurt: B4IF) (the “Company” or “Goliath”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (“ MOU ”) with BWCG Holding Ltd. (Formerly Blackwolf Copper and Gold Inc.), Blackwolf Copper and Gold (TSXV: BWCG, OTC: BWCGF), Coast Copper Corp Dolly Varden Silver (TSXV: DV, OTC: DOLLF), and New Moly LLC (collectively, the “ Companies ”) to jointly study the viability of using New Moly’s Kitsault Project (“ Kitsault ” or the “ Project ”) as the potential site for a centralized polymetallic processing facility that could accept mineralized material from the Companies’ respective deposits and/or new discoveries (“ Kitsault Polymetallic Mill ”), located nearby on tidewater in northwestern, B.C. and/or southeastern, Alaska (See Figure 1. below).
Prior to signing the initial MOU, Blackwolf Copper and Gold undertook initial discussions with Nis
a’a Lisims Government regarding potential amendments to the Mines Act Permits for Kitsault to support a polymetallic mill.
a’a Lisims Government has had initial discussions with Blackwolf Copper and Gold on the concept of a hub and spoke mill at the site of the Kitsault Project. We look forward to further consultation on this and other natural resource opportunities within the Nass Area which is subject to the Nisga’a Final Agreement where we have constitutionally protected title and rights”* said Charles Morven, Secretary-Treasurer for Nis
a’a Lisims Government .
We look forward to working with this collaboration of Companies to study the potential synergies that include reduced respective capital, processing costs as well as reduce permitting timelines and risks by using a permitted site located on tidewater ,” said Roger Rosmus, Founder & CEO. “ With the Surebet’s Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn discovery that has two barge access points located on tidewater and marine bulk transport being reasonably cost effective. We believe that the Kitsault site could potentially be an excellent fit for Goliath to unlock additional shareholder value.”
The proposed site at Kitsault previously hosted a molybdenum mine. Within the past decade, Kitsault received Canadian Federal and Provincial Permits and given the buoyant molybdenum market, New Moly is now considering funding requirements to restart a larger scale project. The Project is located on the BC Hydro grid, has road access to the Nass Valley and tidewater access. The Kitsault Polymetallic Mill concept may assist to enhance and de-risk the potential restart of Kitsault.
The Companies have engaged Fuse Advisors Inc. (“Fuse Advisors”) to complete an initial assessment of the technical viability of the Kitsault Polymetallic Mill concept and will jointly share the costs of this study. By reviewing the respective metallurgical test work completed at the various deposits, Fuse will assess the potential for blending or batching mineralized material, potential process flow-sheets, potential throughputs from the various deposits and associated mill sizing and timelines.

The Kitsault Mine Project is one of the largest and highest-grade primary molybdenum deposits in the world. The Project is owned by Avanti Kitsault Mine Ltd. (“ AKML ”), in which New Moly has a 100% interest. The Kitsault Mine is located in northwestern British Columbia within the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, approximately 140km northeast of Prince Rupert and south of the terminus of Alice Arm, an inlet of the Pacific Ocean (See Figure 2 below).
The Kitsault Mine is a brownfield site with considerable past mining activity and basic infrastructure in place. From as early as 1968, and intermittently until 1982, the mine produced approximately 30 million pounds of molybdenum from open-pit mining. Rehabilitation of the 1981 – 1982 mining program was started under an approved reclamation program in the mid-1990s and was completed in 2006.
AKML completed the purchase of an undivided, 100 percent (%) direct interest in the Kitsault Mine (molybdenum mine and surrounding mineral tenures) from Aluminerie in October 2008. Under AKML, permits have been well advanced with key provincial and federal permits in place for development of an estimated mine life of 15 years with an ore production rate of 16.2 Mt/year. Kitsault’s development would include construction of a process plant, upgrade of the existing powerline, expansion of the existing open pit, construction of a low-grade ore stockpile, waste rock management facility, and a tailings management facility with associated water management ponds. In 2014, AKML entered into a Cooperation and Benefits Agreement (“CBA”) and an Environmental Agreement with the Nis
a’a Nation. This agreement recognizes and formalizes the working relationships between the Nis
a’a Nation and AKML and is a vital step in the development of Kitsault Mine.
New Moly also owns 80% of the Mt. Hope molybdenum project in Nevada, one of the largest permitted primary molybdenum projects in the world with more than a billion pounds of molybdenum and a proposed mine life of more than 40 years.

Blackwolf Copper and Gold’s Niblack Project hosts multiple Cu-Au-Zn-Ag deposits and prospects, located next to tidewater on Prince of Wales Island in southeast Alaska. Current Mineral Resources 1 include 5,851,000 tonnes averaging 0.94% Cu, 1.83 g/t Au, 1.73% Zn and 29.0 g/t Ag in the Indicated Category and 214,000 tonnes averaging 0.93% Cu, 1.52 g/t Au, 1.38% Zn and 18.0 g/t Ag in the additional Inferred Category. Primarily hosted in the Lookout Zone, the Mineral Resources have excellent metallurgical recoveries within a wide mineralized zone, up to 120 meters in true width and is accessed with a production-size underground ramp. Mineralization is wide open for expansion in most areas, and numerous prospects have only received limited drill testing.
  1. Refer to the NI43-101 compliant Mineral Resource Estimation – Niblack Polymetallic Sulphide Project Updated see News Release Dated February 16, 2023, by Dr. Gilles Arsenault, P.Geo,of Arsenault Consulting Services, a Qualified Person Independent of the Company. The Resource uses a US$100 cut-off Net Smelter Return (NSR) and uses long-term metal forecasts: gold US$1,650/oz, silver US$20.00/oz, copper US$3.50/lb, and zinc US$1.10/lb; Recoveries (used for all NSR calculations) to Cu concentrate of 94.3% Cu, 72% Au, 90.2% Zn and 76% Ag. Detailed engineering studies will determine the best cutoff.
Coast Copper’s exploration focus is the optioned Empire Mine property, located on northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, which covers three historical open pit mines and two past-producing underground mines that yielded iron, copper, gold and silver. Coast Copper’s other properties include its 100% owned Knob Hill NW Property located on northern Vancouver Island, its Home Brew and Shovelnose South Properties in central B.C., and its Scottie West Property located in the “Golden Triangle” of northern B.C.
T he contiguous Dolly Varden and Homestake Ridge projects, owned 100% by Dolly Varden Silver, make up a 163 sq. km. land package that is accessible to tidewater at the end of Alice Arm, just across the inlet from the Kitsault site, via a 28km historic mine road. Mineralization in the area consists of silver and gold systems in several areas, often with significant zinc and copper values. The Dolly Varden and Torbrit deposits have seen combined historic production of approximately 20 million oz Ag and have demonstrated good metallurgical recoveries. The property remains prospective for the discovery of additional deposits along a 15 kilometer trend of favorable host rocks and alteration.
Goliath controls 100% of the Golddigger property that covers an area of 59,089 hectares, located on tidewater northwest of the Kitsault site and west of Dolly Varden Silver’s Kitsault Valley Project. The Company has discovered a new, high-grade polymetallic gold-silver shear zone, the “Surebet Zone” on the property that has been confirmed over a 1.6 square kilometer area averaging 6.31 g/t AuEq (4.45 g/t Au & 110 g/t Ag) over 6.88 meters* wide. Mineralization within the Surebet Zone consists of structurally controlled massive, semi-massive, and disseminated sulphides containing Galena, Sphalerite, Pyrrhotite and Pyrite. These lenses occur within broad alteration halos of silica flooded sediments which also contain polymetallic mineralization up to 43.5 meters wide. The initial metallurgy shows exceptional results of 92.2% Gold recovery using traditional gravity and flotation processes; inclusive of 48.8% free gold from simple gravity at a 327 micron crush.

\Goliath widths are reported in drill core lengths and the true widths are approximately 80-90% and AuEq metal values are calculated using: Au 1644.08 USD/oz, Ag 19.23 USD/oz, Cu 3.47 USD/lbs, Pb 1870.50 USD/ton and Zn 2882.50 USD/ton on October 28, 2022. There is potential for economic recovery of gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc from these occurrences based on other mining and exploration projects in the same Golden Triangle Mining Camp where Goliath’s project is located such as the Homestake Ridge Gold Project (Auryn Resources Technical Report), Updated Mineral Resource Estimate and Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Homestake Ridge Gold Project, prepared by Minefill Services Inc. (Bothell, Washington), dated May 29, 2020. Here, AuEq values were calculated using 3-year running averages for metal price, and included provisions for metallurgical recoveries, treatment charges, refining costs, and transportation. Recoveries for Gold were 85.5%, Silver at 74.6%, Copper at 74.6% and Lead at 45.3%. It will be assumed that Zinc can be recovered with the Copper at the same recovery rate of 74.6%. The quoted reference of metallurgical recoveries is not from Goliath’s Golddigger Project, Surebet Zone mineralization, and there is no guarantee that such recoveries will ever be achieved, unless detailed metallurgical work such as in a Feasibility Study can be eventually completed on the Golddigger Project.

2023.03.21 16:14 louied91 Canadian Critical Minerals Inc (OTCQB:RIINF) (TSX.V:CCMI): Top Mining Stock To Watch

Article Link: https://thestreetreports.com/canadian-critical-minerals-inc-otcqbriinf-tsx-vccmi-top-mining-stock-to-watch/
In recent times, there has been a lot of interest in the mining sector owing to the fluctuation in commodity prices and there are many companies that investors could consider tracking. One of those could well be Canadian Critical Minerals Inc (OTCQB:RIINF) (TSX.V:CCMI), which is currently focused on a pair of copper production assets in Canada.
Trading Activity
RIINF stock closed up by 4.27% to $0.0381 with more than 205K shares traded hands, compared to its average volume of 63K shares.
The company’s primary asset is the Bull River Mine project near Cranbrook, which is owned in its entirety and boasts mineral resources containing silver, gold, and copper. Not too long ago Canadian Critical Minerals managed to complete the 100% acquisition of the Thierry Mine project located near Pickle Lake in Ontario. That asset has mineral resources containing nickel, silver, copper, gold, palladium, and platinum.
Earlier on in the month, the company was in the news on March 7 after it announced that it had been successful in eradicating its debts to the tune of $115,500 through the issuance of as many as 1,650,000 common shares. The common shares had been issued at a deemed price of $0.07 each.
The shares that had been issued by Canadian Critical Minerals as part of the transaction were going to be subject to a hold period of four months and a day. It was a significant development for the company and one that could have significant long-term benefits.
The company made another similar transaction back in February when it announced that it had gone into debt agreements for the purpose of extinguishing as much as $123,000 of its outstanding debts. In order to take care of those debts, Canadian Critical Minerals issued as many as $1,757,143 common shares at the deemed price of $0.07 each.
Those shares were issued to the creditors, who were revealed to be some related parties of the company. The shares were to be issued to the creditors after they were accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange.

2023.03.21 16:03 colebanning A Review of Our Game Did we over balance?

Hey all,
I designed the game Wizards of the Grimoire. I haven't been as active here since we published it, but found this subreddit to be a great resource for the years that we worked on it. We recently received a review from Dan Thurot that really has made me think about the design of our game, especially as we've started exploring the idea of publishing an expansion.
He had the following to say:
Everything is so fine-tuned to provide a close match that breakaway victories are rare. There’s a certain appeal to a well-regulated pairing, of course, but I wouldn’t have minded seeing a few spells that broke the game for a hefty price. Victory is more a case of nickel and diming your foe to death than one of discovering a way to red-mist them. In the same way a tight sporting match can sometimes totter over the line from gripping to grinding, Wizards of the Grimoire occasionally drips on a little too steadily.
Full write-up here.
I thought it was interesting, as games are so often lauded on the basis of their balance, to hear a criticism of being overly fine-tuned. I'm of course defensive, as we put a lot of work into ensuring cards were balanced. But admittedly, we don't play games just for balance and the "right person winning", we play just as much for big twists and unexpected turns. As a result, I've started thinking about if there might be value in including cards with higher variance, which can increase the frequency of those moments.
Anyways curious on others thoughts, and if this is something you think about at all with your own game design.
